I have been lucky enough to visit Germany on a few occasions and have spent time in Cologne, Munich, Frankfurt and Berlin and I'm really hoping to revisit again, hopefully, this year as there are so many reasons why from their beautiful scenery, amazing food, beer, architecture and culture and I've only ever had positive travel experiences there and can't wait to go back. It has a really unique feel to it with so much culture and has something for everyone from chic cities to breathtaking forests and mountain ranges and while the food may not have the same recognition as that of the French or Spanish for example but it does have it's only identity and unique dishes and plenty of choices when it comes to beers.

So if you need any more convincing here are 5 other reasons why you should consider a trip to Germany in the future.

1. Food and Festivities

The Germans love festivals and I think most people would have heard of Oktoberfest which is celebrated right across the country where beer halls fill up and both locals and travellers enjoy music, food and laughter but it's not the only festival, there are others such as The Pumpkin festival which sounds like a lot of fun as well as the famous Christmas markets.

2. Museums, history and culture

Germany is so rich in history and there are an array of museums to visit especially in the bustling capital of Berlin and you certainly cannot forget a visit to the remnants of The Berlin Wall. You can also "walk through" history in the medieval town of Nuremberg where you can explore the old city walls, castles and range of old churches. Germany has more than 43 UNESCO World heritage sites so you won't be short on places to visit there. Germany is also a very culturally diverse country with over 80 million people living there from around the world, making it a culturally rich destination. 

3. The Black Forest and the famous Cuckoo Clocks

When I was younger my parents took my brother and I to the Black Forest in Germany and if you have the time it's a place I highly recommend visiting as not only is it home to world-renowned thermal spas and the inspiration for the Grimm Brothers fairy tales but also the famous German cuckoo clocks which I was insistent on getting one and we still have today (and it still works!). The area is popular not just with tourists but also locals as it has beautiful valleys, rivers and forests and is a perfect place for hiking and outdoor pursuits and is well worth a visit.

4. The Bavarian Alps

Many people think of France or Italy when booking a skiing or snowboarding getaway but the Bavarian Alps which borders Austria is another world-class winter sports destination as well as being one of the most picturesque regions in the country. If hitting the slopes is not for you this area is also abundant with fir forests. glacial lakes and wildlife as well as a unique regional culture and traditions such as their famous bratwurst. 

5. Practical and Safe

Germany is also an incredibly safe country, in fact, one of the safest in Europe to visit, I've travelled there many times as a solo female and have never felt unsafe. The crime rate is low even for petty crimes such as pickpocketing. Ther German people are also very welcoming, helpful and polite and are likely to help you should you get lost of are having some difficulties, which is very useful when you are in a foreign country, many of them, especially in the cities also speak fantastic English. Another plus is that transport is very reliable and efficient, with a well-connected network of trains and buses, making it very easy to get around the country using public transport.
